Animal ID: Courtsey PostRaisin (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hey there! My name is Raisin..I'm a medium size(35 lb) Lab/pit mix.. I'm only 1 1/2 so I want a family who wants to love me for a very long time.I'm a very pretty combination of black and white. My humans say that I'm super sweet and smart! That's a good thing,right? I love,love,love to play with other dogs, and it would be great if you had one, because I'm a GREAT playmate..just watch my video, you'll see.about a year and a half old. Cats? Not so much..I really like to chase those little things,it turns out the cats don't like to be chased!! Who knew?s I also really like kids..but my humans think I'm a bit to excited for the little ... (Read More)ones.Some of them move faster than I do!! That scares me a little, so I better stick with the bigger ones. I don't like to get into trouble. You know what I like the BEST? DIGGING!!! Can I do that at your house? I live next to farm fields, and I only dig where I'm supposed to. New places with exciting sights, smells, people, and dogs are trickier for me, and my human says I need a little more work to be off leash. I'm trying to learn the on-leash rules, too.I like to take a couple walks,or a long hike everyday--or playing with one of my own kind-that wears me out, too. I sleep in my crate all night, BUT once I'm been with you for a little bit, I can be trusted to sleep on my dog bed. When my humans go, wherever humans go, I stay in my crate. But only for 3-4 hours. I really need a human family that wants to spend time with me. I'm a fast learner, and I do listen very well when humans say nice things...like 'what a good girl' and 'good job,Raisin'. If you give me chance to be your forever friend, I promise you won't be sorry. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-18-00638Charlie (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Ello, Charlie here, so very pleased to make your acquaintance. I am a 50lb 2-3 year-old male American Pit Bull Terrier and I am neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. You might notice that I have a rather significant overbite that results from issues with my mandible and nasopharyngeal area and can cause some breathing difficulties from time to time. I have a prescription for two medications that I take only as needed-which is rarely. My people are happy to share more information with anyone interested in adopting me. It's just most important that I avoid becoming over-heated. I wear a 'Sense-ation' harness when walking. I have mastered, ... (Read More)'Sit,' 'Wait' and 'Down'. I sit and wait for my meals. So, now, I am learning, 'Leave It' and 'Off.' I am a happy puppy at heart. Sometimes, I am tempted by socks . . . but other than those wonderfully smelly garments, I don't bother my peoples' belongings. I do enjoy all manner of dog toys and chews. I like to play with them by myself, with people-friends, or with dog-friends, like me. My foster-sister, Libby and I are presently engaged in a never-ending war, called 'tug.' Even though people call it 'war,' its just play for us and we don't care who wins. I get along famously with quite a menagerie of dogs at my foster home . . . there is just one rather outspoken old man who is gruff with all of us, but I am learning to give him a wide-berth. Though no children live here, several visit regularly. They range from ages 8 to 14 and with slow respectful introductions I am very comfortable around them and rather enjoy being loved by them. I do recall that when younger children would rush at a dog I was frightened. When my people are away during the day, I stay in my crate. I complain a little at first, because I would much rather be with my people-friends or dog-friends, but I quiet down soon enough. I have been called, a lover and player, delightful, a sweet boy, and sometimes, a 'space-invader,' because I LOVE to snuggle. I am affectionate, eager to please and well-behaved. When I first meet new people, I can be a little standoffish-I do best if they just ignore me and allow me to approach them when I am ready. If you give me a little space when we first meet, I will be happy to 'invade your space' and give you love, if you let me.

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-14-00019CHERRY (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! My name is Cherry, and I am a super happy, affectionate, playful, silly young lady. I am super smart too. I know Sit, Catch, come, get off (the couch), get out (of the kitchen) and Get down. I am a bit of a chewer, i would like a small collection of carefully chosen chew toys that can be rotated so I don't get bored. I respond very well to redirection when I'm chewing something inappropriate (couch pillows, the cat :) ) I get along beautifully with the other 6 dogs and the single cat that lives here. I'm playful and respectful, and almost always very very silly! I show a bit too much interest in chickens and ducks, so it may not be ... (Read More)a good idea for me to be around them. I love kids but I don't feel the need to run to them and introduce myself. I just hang around, and if they look like they're doing something or eating something of interest, I will make friends at that point. When meeting new people I act really shy'|.but don't be fooled! I will come around with time. I stay in my crate when my people are not at home. Because I'm such a chewer, I may get into things when you are not at home if I am not crated. I sometimes stay in my crate at night and sometimes not. As long as I am sleeping and not playing with the other dogs or starting a riot at 2 a.m., it all works out just fine. I will sometimes bark and yip occasionally, but not often. My foster mom says that I'm incredibly lovable, and soft. I am a beautiful funny girl. I love to curl up with my people at night on the couch, I can get any of the other dogs to play and they all like me. I love to ride and hang around outside, I LOVE my toys -- and I am 100% puppy. I chews and fall asleep in inappropriate places, I eats like a Viking, I drools and spill water all over when I drink, and I have a big wide life-loving smile . . . .It's all part of my charm. Cherry is a 30 lb., 6 month old, Pitbull mix. She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.

Rescue Me ID: 15-11-05-00558Emerson (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Are you a well-balanced confident leader? Is your home environment calm and peaceful? Do you have experience working with strong intelligent breeds of dogs? Are you able to provide a well-structured routine? Are you a single adult or a couple looking for a companion dog? If you are, Emerson wants to meet you! Emerson is a 65 lb 4-year-old male Pit-Bull Terrier. He is neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. Emerson is crate-trained and house trained. He LOVES using the treadmill for indoor walks, as well as walking outside when on leash. Emerson is making great strides in his training and we feel he may be able to go to a home with another ... (Read More)dog who is calm and relaxed, but will wait for just the right fit. His interactions with other pets are fine under structured circumstances. But, we do not feel that Emerson would be successful in unstructured off-leash interactions at this point, because he becomes overly excited. However, every day he is showing improvement in this area! Nonetheless, we also recommend a home without children, so that a calm environment can be provided. Emerson likes having a routine. He thrives with a consistent daily schedule. Emerson is affectionate and loves a good head rub more than anything else. Emerson is eager to please and playful. Emerson does not like to be separated from his people if they are home. Don't expect to leave him out in the yard and have him be happy about it! However, if you leave the home, he quietly waits in his crate for your return. Emerson is currently being fostered by and is working with Paula Bergeron of the Good Dogma Canine Rehabilitation and Training Center in Grafton, NH. Emerson's foster/trainer, Paula, will offer his adopter four free lessons, and continued support for a positive beginning. **Emerson is part of our Home for the Holidays Special and his adoption fee has been reduced to $150 until the end of January** Dear Santa, I have been a very good boy and I was hoping, if it wouldn't be too much trouble . . . could I have a person and a home to call my very own? Love, Emerson To adopt, please submit an application at this ink: http://form.jotform.com/form/11880935459 or visit www.pottersangelsrescue.org to view additional adoptable dogs and for more information.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Vermont
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Vermont if they match your IifestyIe. The American Pit Bull Terrier is a powerful dog with an undeserved reputation for inherent viciousness. A Pit Bull that receives attention, firm training, and thorough socialization makes a wonderful family guardian that is trustworthy with children. Pit Bulls need committed, experienced owners that exude leadership. Pit Bulls excel at high level obedience with proper training. Pit Bulls have been bred for dog fights, and unfortunately a dog that is abused, neglected, or whose instinctive aggression is encouraged, can become hostile and dangerous. Pit Bulls can adapt to apartment life with enough exercise.

lnteresting Pit Bull Trivia Low-Cost Vermont Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are often used for illegal dog fighting. A disproportionate number of Pit Bulls are put down in major American cities each year. American Pit Bull Terriers are very similar, and some argue identical, to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
